The Presidency has reacted to a statement credited to former president Goodluck Jonathan advising President Muhammadu Buhari Buhari against rigging elections.
Jonathan at the inauguration of the first bridge built by Governor Fayose of Ekiti in Ado Ekiti advised Buhari to leave behind a good name by resisting pressure to rig the July 14 governorship election in Ekiti state and subsequent elections in the country.
Reacting, personal assistant to president Muhammadu Buhari on social media, Lauretta Onochie said the former president had no moral right to advise President Buhari.
Onochie noted that Jonathan lacked moral standing to advise Buhari on democracy following accusations of looting against him.
According to her, “A man whose name is on the lips of looters has no right to speak in public.
“Watching ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, a man whose name is on the lips of looters having authorised the looting of our common wealth. He’s shamelessly on National TV and dared to advise President Buhari on issues bothering on the growth of democracy. He lacks the moral standing to speak in public.”
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that Jonathan said he was ashamed that Nigeria is now being used as a negative example in the international community.
He cited recent instances when the Ghanaian president, Nana Akufo-Addo, allegedly mocked the poor state of security in Nigeria and the naira’s weakening status.
Jonathan spoke at the inauguration of the first bridge built by Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state in Ado Ekiti, the state capital, on Friday, May 25.
